Kathryn is passionate about high quality patient care and experience, and the nursing profession.


‘Our nurses have the time to care; not only to provide deep clinical knowledge and nursing care, but to treat each person as an individual – including their family and loved ones. We obsess over every detail, from the simple things in life, to lifesaving clinical expertise. We have over 300 nurses who are trained and mentored to provide exceptional treatment. Patients come into our care at often the most difficult times in their lives, and it’s a privilege to get to know them and their families and help them in every way we can towards recovery.’
